Fuel prices

Postby olive » Sat Jan 13, 2024 10:34 pm

Plenty of info out there to find the lowest price in your area.

In ours it is 129 for diesel at the new Petro Prix station. The other neighbouring but manned discounters are 139. Repsol meanwhile is 156.

There was a time when I would only use a premium nd and occasionally used the premium on long journeys .Last year I saw Repsol liveried lorry deliver to our olive co op and reading it would appear there is only one fuel distributor here in Spain.

If that is the case, what is to be gained by using premium brand fuel ? What do you use? 25 cents a litre difference is quite a differnce.

It's the old "supermarket fuel" myth. It's all the same. About the only possible difference could be the amount of (relatively) expensive additives. If you aren't happy with that, buy some fuel additive and put some in. I use the cheapest I can find. Currently Alcampo is about 15c cheaper.

In the uk people say never buy supermarket fuel as it ruins your engine. I have used Tesco and Morrisons for 40 years without a problem. The only exception was when I had a 911 then I used shell super.

prices have risen a little over the last week or so. I filled up on Tuesday and paid 1.50 for Unleaded 95.
